Houston PD Chief Announces How Many Looters Attempted to Prey on Harvey—Then Gives Striking Warning

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo gave a press briefing on the emergency response to Hurricane Harvey’s aftermath.

At the briefing, Acevedo noted that emergency response teams had rescued at least 2,000 Houstonians.

As noted by KTRK, Acevedo also said that four looters had been arrested. Then he gave a stern warning to anyone even contemplating the cowardly act:

“We’ve already arrested a handful of looters. We’ve made it real clear to our community we’re going to do whatever it takes to protect their homes and their businesses. And when people come from the outside to Houston, Texas, know we’re going to be out in the city, we’re not going to rest as a police department or law enforcement community until people restore their lives.”

Let that be a stark warning to potential looters. As two individuals who attempted to break into homes during Harvey’s landfall know, if law enforcement is not available, Texans will shoot to defend their property and kill if necessary.

    Two things, under these circumstances when you ahve a catastorphic storm like this, dislodging people from homes and their business’s, then looters come into the fray, law enforcement should be allowed to shoot on sight, end of story!! That is what you call real deterrent!! Two: below that it says watch Obama’s face something that would end his legacy, REALLY?? What legacy?? Other than he did everything he could to ruin this country and turn it into a muslim nation, screw him, what a POS!!
